"Read the statistics and you will see it is a gateway drug that causes physical,familial,legal,academic and social problems".
All those problems you're referring to, are associated with marihuana's legal status more likely. Physical problems? I'd love to see a study to back that claim, expecting to receive a scientific article, that talkes about USE, and not ABUSE. Because, we know that the abuse of alcohol brings a lot of problems on the side, we know that the abuse of marihuana can also bring problems by its side, as well as the abuse on hamburguers, video games, tv, sedentarism, and lots of things.... Everything, when abused, is wrong... If we were to treat this problem as a health problem, instead of a criminal problem, the whole scenario would be different, take a look to netherlands, they were about to close prisons due to low occupancy, until they came with the great idea to rent those prisons to Belgium, where cannabis its legal.
Take a look at Portugal's decriminalization, lowered deads because of wrong use of needles, lowered use of cocaine, lowered aids, and the people in Portugal are very comfortable with the results of that decision.... Decision that WILL be taken in every single country... Sooner or later, and I'm pretty damn sure it's a lot sooner than later.
